Three men while out hunting last week,
were overtaken by uight in the mountains,
and trying to find camp in the dark, lost
the trail. One man, John Pattersop, fell
from a cliffy sixteen feet high, striking his
side on two sharp rocks. He received quite
severs internal injuries, but no broken
bones. He was carrying two guns at the
time, and they probably saved his life by
breaking the fall. The muzz'e of one ran
three feet into the ground.
The Astorian puts it in the following
very peculiar but true way. The columns
of a newspaper resemble in one sense a
bill of fare. No man would care to eat all
he finds named in the slip before hi,n when
he sits down to breakfast or di,e, yet it
would be strange indeed if he did not see
something that suited him. We all have
different tastes, fortunately for mankind,
and the item or paragraph that you turn
from and think uncalled for or unnecessary
may be joat what your neighbor at the next
table wanted to see.

Ed. Gazette: At the time of writing
everytfr ng seems to be gliding along quietly
and in perfect harmony. Spr ng, summer,
autumn and winter follow each other iu
their appointed cycles without witnessing
many departures from the common quietude
of our little citv, which is yet in its infancy.
The first Monday in December being the
day for our city election is causing an unu
sual amount of electionerinj; as this is un
doubtedly another chance for several of our
citizens to be promoted.
The firm formerly kDown as Gleason and
McLain ha been dissolved by mutual con

part of the merchandise to the grange hall
on Muddy where he has opened a store.
Mr. McLain is still occupying the old stand.
T. W. Belt has opened a neat store and is
selling a good article at a low figure and
we bespeak for him a liberal patronage.
Prof. Jones, well known as one of the
leading musicians of the valley, has organ
ized a class in sim."'ng and vocal culture at
this place. The public school house is
crowded every Monday even-ng by the
citizens both young and old who go there
to enjoy a good sociable time. The first
part of the evening being devoted to the
pract:ce of spelling the afte.- pj,rt to Rhetor

Mr. J. Baiker our barber is se-iously ill

Last night near 12 o'clock amid the rain
and intense darkness of the night, our cit
izens we, e sta.-tled from their quiet slum
bers by such hideous yells, beating of pans
rattling of be'ls and roaring of Runs, that
our minus were quie'ely called DacK irom
dreamy lands: and for awhile it seemed as
if we had been snddeuly transported to the
infernal regions. It aH being caused by a
gang of boys who, perhaps without many
dimes in the;r pockets, were hungry for a
treat, had gone to charivari a newly mar
ried coup!e just on the outside of the cor
poration. Mr. S. Gilmoie, our city marshal, re
turned from court yesterday. He has not
been hanged yet; but wuh a cheerful coun

..In 1881 London had 3,815,571 inhabitants
of which 1,794,106 'were males and 2,020,
495 females or 16 females to 14 males.
The females had a majority over the males
of 226,359, a larger number than the com
bined armies of Napoleon and Wellington
at Waterloo. Without including suburbs
it covers 78,0S0 acres or 122 square miles.
The people of London are packed in at the
rate of 32,356 to the sq. mile or a little over
fifty to the acre. In 1881 there were 4S6,
286 inhab ited houses in London or about 7$
persons to a house. If London continues
to increase in population at the same rate
as it did between 1871 and 1881, by 1891
it will have 4,451,499 inhabitants, by 1901,
5, 193,415 and by 1951 it will contain, the
enormous number, of 11,224,991 inhabi
tants. If the same propotion of females to
males should continue in 1951 there will be
about 750,000, more females than males, so
that London 70 years hence will probably
be a poor place for females to come to in
pursuit of a husband. Counting one ton of
steam vessels as equaling three of sailing
vessels the total tonnage of the world is set
down by Kiaer a great Norwegian statisti
cian at 27 420, 133 tons of which 2,330,6SS
is accredited to London. Theie is always
more than a thousand vessels -in the port of
London. London consumes over 4,000,000,
tons of coal per annum. The public houses
(saloons) of London if placed in a straight
line would form a continuous row of houses
I over forty miles in length. St. Paul's Ca
! thedral is tbe largest Protestant place of
I worship in the world. It has sitting capac
ity for 20,000 people and standing room for
35,000. Half a million people travel up to
the City proper every morning by rail, bus,
train and cab from the outlying districs and
suberbs returning to the. homes again in
the evening. 25,000 business men etc ar
rive at the Broad Street Railroad terminus
every morning betwen the hours of 7 to 10,
a. m. The clearing houses of London do
business to the amount of on the average
600.000.000 dollars weekly. The stores of
London would form a continuous street
from London to Redinburgh a distance of
400 miles. Correspondent.
Couldn't Ship the Farm.
There arrived at Salem, yesterday, one of
the largest car loads of household goods,
horses, farming implements, etc., that was
ever unloaded at this place says the Tal.'c.
A man, Stodard by name, of Tower Ciyt
Dak., chartered a car from that point for
300 and as they sent him aii extra large
one he tried to load her down. . His wagons
he took apart, and together with a mower
and binder, he placed on top of the car.
The wagon bed he used as a chicken coop,
and filled it with turkies, chickens and oth
er fowls, and put that on top. In one end
of the car he put five horses, but unfortu
nately for him two of them took a severe
cold while in the mountains and died. In
the other end he put all bis household
plunder, everything from a needle case to
the organ was packed away. Near the
homes he had a bin in which he kept his
oats with which to feed the teams. The
center of the car he converted into a house,
and in it he and his family of three or more
persons lived while en route. Thinking
that times might be hard here he brought
his seed wheat, and some twenty bushels of
potatoes. Quite a number of plows, har
rows, sets of harness, hatchets, nails, etc..
were stored away somewhere in the car.
When we saw the pile it all made when un
loaded, we began to look about for the farm
itself. He might just as well have bought
two or three feet of Dacota's soil along as
A Dual Tragedy.
It will be remembered (that the Yakima
Signal some time since, says that paper, con
tained an allusion to the mysterious disap
pearance of a man named Frasier, who wao
a member of what is known as the Cali

vast aBfl pattially settled region lying
northeast of White Bluffs, on the Colum

settlement which is lecajtel in the vicinity
ofthe Grand Coulee. A search was insti
tuted for the m:ss;ig man and continued
throughout the entire month of September.
One of his pack hors . Wis found and this
and other traces indicated foul play. The
investigation was followed up with such
vigor and determination that a certain In
dian living up iu that country who kuew of
the fate of the lost man, concluded that it
might be safer to divulge the secret. He.
accordingly went to the stockme-i and oth
ers who had been making inquiry into the
mystery and told that the missing man had
been murdered and robbed and thrown into
Moses lake. To confirm the report he took
the party to the lake and showed them the
body of the unfortunate man who was
found to have been shot and robbed as re
ported. The Indian volunteered to go and
point out the Indian who performed the
ghastly deed. The murderer was readily

WILES HOLMAN On Sunday Novem
ber 18th 1883, in the Evan -elical church
at Wells Station, Benton county, Oregon,
Mr. Walter T. VViles. and Miss Lucy C.
Holman. Rev. J. L. Hershner offici
ating. No formal announcement of this happy
event was made, yet a very large concourse
of people assembled together, and immedi
ately after the close of the regular morn
ing'3 services the contracting parties en
tered the church, slowly advanced up the
aisle, were received at the altar, and the
words were spoken that made "twain one,"
after which they received the sincere con
gratulations and well wishes of their many
friends, and a large circle of acquaintances.
A number of invited guests then repaired
to the residence of the bride-groom's father,
Mr. John Wiles, where a sumptous dinner
waj given to the happy couple, and their
near friends. The evening was spent in
enlivening conversation and in discoursing
appropriate music, with Miss Anna Will
iams presiding at the organ.
On Monday morning Mr. and Mrs. Wiles
took the train for an extended wedding
tour, during which, they will visit the
bridegroom's sister, Mrs. Kirkpatrick, at
Port Townsend and Mrs. Wells at Mc
Minnville; they will also stop at Portland
a few days, where Miss Lou Wiles is at
tending school.
Walter is one of the most industrious
devoted christian young men of Benton
county, and he may well feel himself proud
in securing a life partner so amiable, affec
tionate and religiously inclined, as is his
bride. May joy, peace and prosperity in
rich abundance attend them throughout
life's voyage. Correspondent.
